Below are five quotes from Leonardo da Vinci. With his appreciation for learning and growing, there's much to learn from the Italian superhuman:

  • "Learning never exhausts the mind."  
  • "I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection."  
  • "It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things."  
  • "I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do."  
  • "Life is pretty simple. You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else. "
